Edible Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Recipe
  • You can serve this cookie dough at room temperature if you wish.
  • This recipe does not require cream of tartar unlike traditional snickerdoodle cookies, so don’t worry about it missing from the recipe.
  • Feel free to use a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop to dish up this cookie dough rather than rolling it into balls with your hands.

To serve your edible snickerdoodle cookie dough, consider dishing it up in bite sized balls or, alternately, using an ice cream scoop to dish into bowls. I recommend you serve cookie dough chilled. However, there are some that love eating cookie dough at room temperature. To each their own!

Besides eating your snickerdoodle cookie dough plain, you could also try adding it to other recipes to take things to the next level. Try using it to make a snickerdoodle cookie dough blizzard, snickerdoodle cookie dough cake, or a myriad of other delicious recipes using cookie dough.

Use your imagination and get creative!

Store leftover cookie dough in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 3 days in the fridge.

Beyond this point, you can store the cookie dough in the freezer using a freezer-safe airtight container or freezer bag for up to 2 months at best quality.

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

Healthy Variations

  • To make this an edible snickerdoodle cookie dough no butter recipe, replace the traditional butter with vegan or plant-based butter.
  • If you are keto or low carb, try replacing your sugar with low-calorie granulated sweetener. Be careful of the carb count in the flour, though.
  • If you are in need of a low carb edible cookie dough, check out almond flour cookie dough instead.
  • Try adding a few mix ins to change the flavor of the cookie dough a bit. Adding chocolate chips make it taste similar to chocolate chip cookie dough, but with a cinnamon twist!
  • Though some people use applesauce as a replacement for butter and oil in some recipes, I don’t recommend it when making snickerdoodle cookie dough.

Yes, it is totally safe to eat this edible snickerdoodle dough.

But while we are on the topic, let’s take a minute to discuss exactly why you should opt to eat an edible cookie dough rather than eat raw cookie dough.

For starters, raw cookie dough contains raw egg. As you know, eating raw eggs is linked to several health complications through the introduction of harmful germs. But it doesn’t stop there. What many people don’t know is that raw flour poses a risk too, as flour that is uncooked harbors the same germs.

So, what can be done?

If you want to enjoy edible cookie dough, it is recommended that you use an eggless heat treated flour recipe, like the one detailed below.

Don’t have heat treated flour? No worries! Heat treated flour isn’t typically something you buy, but rather, something you make for use in food items like edible dough.

If you’re in the mood for something cinnamon-y and sweet, this edible cookie dough is your ticket to creating just that. This edible cookie dough is eggless and contains no raw flour, so it’s safe to eat directly from the bowl.

Remember that there are a variety of ways to switch up this recipe, so take your time trying different mix ins and variations until you find the substitutions that work best for you.

Until next time!
